Spotlight on Timbila! Performing Live at the Howl! Festival in Tompkins Square Park

The Howl! Festival is thrilled to announce that Timbila will perform live in Tompkins Square Park on Saturday, September 11th, 2010.  They will appear on the South Stage, Avenue A at 7th Street, from 4:25 -4:55PM.

TIMBILA blazes ecstatic African rock with an East Village edge. The trance of African spirit possession merges with the trance of free-spirited head-bangers. The surreal buzzing beauty of timbila (Chopi xylophone, Mozambique) and hypnotic dream melodies of mbira (Shona thumb piano, Zimbabwe) soar with stinging guitar riffs and sassy celestial vocals in grooves that are deeply funky, fierce and danceable. No other band sounds like TIMBILA:

NORA BALABAN - mbira, timbila, vocals 
BANNING EYRE - guitars 
ED KLINGER - drums, vocals
